I'm quite sad and disappointed that Phamish no longer have pizzas on their menu! They were delicious (the margherita in particular) and the prices were pretty good for them as well.

Stopped in for an early breakfast. Good to be first in the door on a quiet weekend day. The ladies working there were extremely friendly and inviting. The food was well presented, prepared and served. The coffee was very good as well. You're sitting right across the street from Luna Park so there is plenty of street life to look... More

Only diners on the night we visited. This was our second visit. On our first visit, a Friday night there was live music being played very loud. Service was poor and food not very exciting. Serving drinks was the priority.

Staff pleasant and service not too bad. Food and coffee okay but not spectacular. Would have anticipated better food etc for prices charged but hey it was raining and as they say ' any port in a storm'. Found better cafes etc within walking distance so choice not a problem in this area.

Visited this restaurant with family recently. The food selection was excellent, the service very friendly and helpful. Staff were also very friendly and helpful with my 3yo grandson. Nice coffee also in a restaurant with great ambience and outlook across the road to the Palais. Will definitely come here again :)

A neat little outlet with good ambience and some great live music on Thursday nights. Bang opposite the Luna Park the outlet has a vast variety of beers and spirits. The menu offers a wide range of starters and main courses. Food is palatable. The Jazz bands performing on Thursdays are just amazing. A good place to hang out specially... More

Came for breakfast. None of the meals were pretty enough or tantalising enough for any pics. Very average fair. Looks more like a nightclub than an eatery. Not a very professional operation that morning we were there - laid back, not professionally trained waitstaff. In the end it was all "just a breakfast"

We visited with friends in a hot Sunday night and it was very empty which was a bit disconcerting. Had a table up the front with a nice view of Luna Park and Port Phillip Bay. Decor is modern and friendly, and our Waitress was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. Food was OK, not brilliant. And while the menu looks... More

Struggling to find somewhere open in St Kilda at 7am on a Tuesday morning I stumbled accross Phamish. If you like foul mouthed blokes on 10speed racers then this place is for you.

We had just walked the markets & stopped for a meal before hitting the shops. Right across the road from Luna Park so a perfect spot to relax with a drink should you be going to Luna. Super healthy options, the food is fantastic. Portions are a great size, well presented & delicious. Clean, busy, friendly with a very chilled... More
